    I loved seeing my fellow knifeknuts and the Spydercrew again at this 15th Spyderco Amsterdam Meet. It’s nice to see that many of my ‘own kind’ in one place. And, oh right, there were also a ‘few’ of Spyderco prototypes….;-). We needed a bit more time than last year, to determine what knives could be photographed and shown publicly, I appreciate your patience and understanding. There are 10 new designs I could shoot and share with you. I will continue processing the images in the next few days and share them all with you as I finish them.

    Eric, Lisa, Jur, Ted and Martien did great job, putting together an amazing 15th Spyderco Amsterdam Meet, thank you !

    Eric’s table was filled with about a 100 prototypes total. The 10 pieces I can share online, will likely all end up in the next Reveal catalog. This indicates these knives are planned to be released between May & August. I have no information on pricing or specific release dates.

    I’m far from a professional photographer, but I hope to still give you a decent impression of these cool new knives in my upcoming posts. Any possible errors in the images or information about these production samples, are all mine. Probably due to experiencing a hefty dose of ‘new knife high’.

    Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Police 4 Lightweight

    I certainly didn’t see this design coming, the Police 4 with a lightweight FRN handle. This knife is all sorts of long, slender and light weight. I can imagine you’d forget you’d carry this knife, it’s that light for its size. If I recall correctly, the bladesteel on the lightweight will (also) be K390. (UPDATE: according to Sal: "The P4 LW will be VG-10. We're also planning K390 (Midnight blue) & ZDP (BRG) in the future.") Fit and finish were spot on. I hope they’ll make a serrated one, so I can retire my G10 Police 4 as a travel folding bread knife.

    Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Endela

    As the name implies, the Endela is the size in between the Delica and Endura. I guess the SKU number should be C10.5? This is not just a ‘shrunken’ or ‘enlarged’ blade, depending on your perspective. The grip and blade have both been redesigned to be an intermediate size between the Delica and Endura. The Endura doesn’t fit my hands, and I always preferred the R or Stretch ergonomically. The Endela fits my hands just as nicely as my Stretch. I hope this design does well, to warrant cool colors and steels. I think I might want to hold out for such a variation.

    Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Dragonfly 2 Emerson Opener
    When the sun’s out and the shorts come out, there’s a Dragonfly clipped to my pocket. They’re as easy to carry as pocket lint, and boy do they cut! You might not realize it, but with regular XL sized hands you can get a full grip on this little folder, and it’s very practical. Living in an urban area, a Dragonfly can take care of any practical cutting chore. This emerson opener variant is great if you like that thick spined spear point tip, and also of course if you’re looking for a quick opening ‘let go device’.

    Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Dragonfly 2 Wharncliffe
    The wharncliffe Spyderco Delica was popular enough to bring out an Endura with a big ‘wharnie’ blade, and now we can look forward to a Dragonfly 2 with a wharncliffe blade. Personally, I prefer the ‘wharnie’ in a smaller blade. An original Kiwi has been my office folder for over 10 years now. I’ll definitely add this lil’ big wharncliffe to my everyday carry rotation!

    Lol the waved dfly made me chuckle :D

    A lightweight Police, Endela, and wharnie Dragonfly... They're sure focusing on the FRN models, all of them well deserving of some attention. That Endela in particular I'd wager heavily will be a hit.

    That Endela looks wonderfully ergonomic.

    I'm not sure actually. I guess we'll know for sure when it's printed in the next reveal catalog.

    In for a P4LW! Curious to try the Endela, I like the Stretch 2 but I’ll give this guy a shot too.

    Was the Para 3 LW there?

    I’m not sure about the Endela name. Bugger needs it’s own name. Something like: Medena, Midena ... denoting the mid point or medium size between the two.
